Bigg Boss 9: Digangana’s past comes haunting with Rishabh’s entry

Television actor and former contestant of MTV Splitsvilla Rishabh Sinha who entered the ‘Bigg Boss 9’ house as the wild card entrant was given a grand welcome by Bigg Boss with ‘band baaja’, even as the rest of the members appeared shocked.

After closely monitoring the show for three weeks from outside, the reality star has come all prepared. Rishabh immediately made his presence felt in the house by creating a ruckus and getting into arguments with many of the housemates. Kishwer seemed annoyed with him when he drank water directly from the flask instead of using a glass. 

Digangana who has already worked with Rishabh in a daily soap revealed that because of him, she was made to quit the show.

Digangana had played the role of Nuzhat, sister of Rishabh’s character Ayan in the TV series ‘Qubool Hai’. Reportedly, due to Rishabh’s inebriated antics, she had an altercation with the actor and matters worsened to an extent that police had to be called on the sets of the show. This upset the producer of the series who replaced her immediately.   

Rishabh however, bonded quite well with Mandana and was seen spending time with her in the sky lounge. He also told her what other housemates have been talking about her in the house so far and why Rochelle is upset with her. Upon learning, she goes up to Keith and Rochelle and tells them that she is thankful that they took care of her when she was unwell. This caused a verbal spat between the two ladies and Rochelle told her that she was unhappy with her because after making new friends in the house she forgot her old friends. Rochelle also told her boyfriend Keith to avoid speaking to Mandana.

When Rochelle appreciates Rishabh cleaning the pool, the latter says something offensive in Hindi which Rochelle doesn’t understand clearly. But later when Kishwer tells Rochelle what Rishabh had meant, she gets infuriated and calls Rishabh cheap. Suyyash and Keith come in support of Rochelle and tell Rishabh that he should watch his tongue while speaking to female members of the house. However, Rishabh said that his words were misconstrued.

Meanwhile, Monday being nomination special, Bigg Boss brought a twist in the procedure by holding an open nomination in the garden area. Each of the members had to nominate three contestants by tearing their pictures and throwing it in the fire. Suyyash was already nominated after he lost the friends page task to Prince. Being the current captain, Prince also got to nominate one contestant directly.

The contestants who got nominated for eviction this week include Suyyash, Mandana, Yuvika, Rimi, Digangana and Aman.
